I need to dial into my company's Win2K server from home. I have been doing this with WinXP but I want to do this with my new linux setup. Should I use wvdial? It works well in dialing into an ISP.
If I can, are there any special settings I need in the wvdial.conf file?
Presently I have
1) Phone number
4) DNS Test1 = 192.168.168.3
5) Stupid Mode = 1
Here's what I get back from wvdial
--> Carrier detected. Starting PPP immediately.
--> Starting pppd at Tue Jan 28 20:26:10 2003
--> pid of pppd: 1641
--> pppd: Using interface ppp0
--> pppd: local IP address 192.168.168.53
--> pppd: remote IP address 192.168.168.50
--> pppd: primary DNS address 192.168.168.3
--> pppd: Script /etc/ppp/ip-up run successful
--> Default route Ok.
--> warning, can't find address for `www.suse.de
--> warning, address lookup does not work
--> Nameserver (DNS) failure, the connection may not work.
I can't ping any IP on the server. Why is the script looking for www.suse.de
and if I specify the DNS, how can it fail?
Any help greatly appreciated.
